Brewed (with help from our great friend Jean of Tired Hands!) on the day of my grandmother’s passing (Norma), this is an inspired Biere de Mars fermented entirely in oak and inoculated with our house spontaneous culture.

The least sour of the lineup at the very sour wheelhouse. Malty and floral aroma. Slightly tart with a nice hit of farmhouse pepper.

Bottled. Medium dark brown, cloudy, with lace. Lactic nose, caramel, honey, lemon, earth. Tangy flavor of lemon and grapefruit, earthy, caramel, salty. Soapy body. Subtle and nice, without being as mind-blowing as other beers I have had from them.

maekchu (2528) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2014
Bomber. Light sour fruit nose, yeast, honey, funk. Sour apples and peaches, light bittering, a bit of barrel. Medium dark straw color. Medium body with medium astringency. Subtle fruit flavors, which dissipate slowly on the tongue and palate. Seems stronger than 7%. Nice one.

Homer321 (2487) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle thanks to willrunforbeer. Pours a beautiful red with small white head. Nose is very funky with some barnyard. Rustic. Taste is quite puckering initially. Slightly drying and thin. This is the most liberal example of the style but it is still quite nice. A touch sweet to be a saison and a touch too funky for a typical BdG. Very nice.

beechner224 (823) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Another share from Homer. Pours a ruby red, white head, pretty beer. Aroma is a bit sour, tart, oak, yummy. Taste is tart up front, the jaws clenched a bit. Mouthfeel is light, def mouth puckering, but not overpowering. Later sips relax the jaw clenching. Tasty beer for sure.

fiulijn (15954) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Danish tasting session
Gushing bottle; pours a muddy dark amber color with large frothy head. Sour and a bit fruity aroma, with hints of vinegar and hazelnuts. Good body strength; it has a moderate and pleasant residual sweetness, a good yeast character, controlled citrusy acidity, lingering fruitiness, medium to low bitterness.
Could be better if more controlled and cleaner, but it’s clearly a good beer.

WillRunForBeer (1127) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle shared at hoppy loft. Pours medium brown with an off white head. Aroma is floral, fresh peaches, citrus. Flavor is very smooth, soft. Some peach, green apple. Finishes tart green apple. Not what I expect in a saison, but quite nice, whatever this is!

curepute (140) - New York, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle from a year ago. Deep hazy orange with a sightly off white head. Nose of oak with different levels of beautiful funk. Taste: amazing. Malty funky sourness with a hint tartness near the end. Finishes with a mild boozy buttery oak taste.

PriorL (2459) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2014
Bottle shared with Mathieu87 and WillRunForBeer. THX! APPEARANCE: clouded dark blond beer, small unstable white head. NOSE: fruity, citrus, hoppy, flemish old brown beer? TASTE: fruity, hoppy, citrus, little dry, bitter, nice and fresh, sour, apples. Don’t know what type of beer this is, but it’s pleasant!

ineedbeer (997) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 14, 2014
2013 Vintage. Aroma is fairly fruity with a lot of stone fruit and light apple cider notes. Hint of citrus and some faint pepper and coriander. Medium light maltiness with some toasted bread and caramel. Pours a fairly cloudy brownish orange with a copper hue and a thin tan head that recedes quickly to the edges and disappears. Light lacing and small legs. Flavor has a light to medium light acidity with medium light malt character; toasted bread, light caramel and crackers. Medium fruitiness with lots of overripe stone fruit and hints of citrus. Light peppery phenolics and medium light bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall a pretty enjoyable beer with a lot of fruit notes and some light phenolics. More malt character than I would have expected, but it works fairly well. Touch of mustiness.
